Austin, Texas - 04-11-14

I am a professional photographer and amateur astronomer that works at the New Jersey Astronomical Association Observatory in Voohees, New Jersey.

I was taking pictures of my son and because I am a drone flyer I saw an object in the sky moving rather quickly across airport grounds. Because I thought that this object was a security drone I snapped the picture and didnít really look at it for weeks.

After finally looking at it to compare to my drone I noticed that it was not a drone at all. It had 4 dome-like structures and a central structure holding it together. There is no obvious flight surface to provide lift so one would assume a balloon.

Unfortunately I had never seen a balloon move this fast and with such purpose... in a straight line and at a level height.

Could it be a drone? Possibly... but given the distance and using some simple geometry (and some assumptions) I estimated the craft to be roughly 20-25 feet across.

This is my 3rd strange sighting I have had in my life. And the only one made during the day OVER a VERY active airport.

In addition I have the RAW. I took this with a 70-200mm f2.8 canon lens... so not cheap glass... and the detail on the raw can be zoomed way in with little loss of resolution. I will try to attach.
